    The Wellerman Sea Shanty


    Verse 1

    There once was a ship that put to sea
    And the name of that ship was the Billy o'Tea
    The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
    Blow, me bully boys, blow (huh)



    Soon may the Wellerman come
    To bring us sugar and tea and rum
    One day, when the tonguing' is done
    We'll take our leave and go


    Verse 2

    She had not been two weeks from shore
    When down on her a right whale bore
    The captain called all hands and swore
    He'd take that whale in tow (huh)
